Bravo V – IRRESISTIBLE Color
Enchantment is guaranteed with the bright colors of Puerto Rican composer Roberto Sierra’s Fandangos and fascinating Spanish-tinged flair of Ravel’s Piano Concerto in G, brilliantly performed by guest pianist Scott Cuellar. Saint-Saens’ Symphony No. 3, known as the “Organ Symphony”, makes a winning, passionate partner and show-stopping finale.
